I'm having my first-ever garage sale. And, just to make sure it's fairly complicated, I'm also organizing my neighbors to have a Pilgrim Lane Area Garage Sale. I have eight families participating. Here is my to-do list; what am I forgetting??
- Price all my stuff. I have my lower-level family room FULL of stuff. Holy crap. This is the scariest part for me.
- Advertise. One of my neighbors is doing a craigslist ad. If it goes well, we might charge a small fee next year and then advertise in the StarTrib as well. Do you read the paper to find garage sales??
- Get tables.
- Find an adding machine.
- Get enough bags. I'm thinking of hitting a restaurant supply store just so I don't have to stress about having enough piled up.
- Get quarters and small bills. No need for other change, there won't be anything priced for less than that. If you want it for a dime, you can just take it. :)
So much to do. Sale opens two weeks from today!
